Jackson Health System payment process shaky

Miami Herald, May 5, 2010

After months of waiting, Terry Hall of Toxicology Testing received an envelope from Jackson Health System earlier this week. Inside was a check for $21,000 for work he did six to nine months ago. The check was a huge sum for his eight-employee firm, which had performed drug testing on Jackson employee and applicants. Its delay and then sudden arrival is an example of Jackson's accounts payable system for its vendors, the Miami Herald reports: getting a bit better, but still dysfunctional.
